Maytag Salutes: Alberto Alcala
06 May, 2016
Name: Alberto Alcala
Hometown: Racine, WI
Why we’re saluting Alberto:
Alberto Alcala has been a photographer in Racine, WI for three decades, owning his own business for over 15 years. He says he’s been blessed to work at a job he loves for most of his life, with his biggest joy coming from seeing the smiles of people looking at their pictures for the first time. For him, being a active member of the community has been a very important part of his life, and something he’s tried to instill in his four children, two of which have special needs.
With his children in mind, Alberto began volunteering each year to provide photos, photo booths, and gathering donations to put on an annual Christmas Celebration for all of the city’s special needs high school students. He also donates his time to shoot senior pictures, at no cost, for those special needs students that otherwise might not have considered being a part of their school’s yearbooks.
Alberto also lends his photographer skills to the Miss Racine Pageant and The Miss Latina Racine Pageants, as well as the Hispanic Professional Association.
